BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 A season that started at High-A ended with a first few sips of September Joe for the top Dodgers prospect. Despite the wild success of that ride, it did end perhaps a bit prematurely. Seeking to both cap the Tommy John survivor's workload and audition the kid for a role of late-inning playoff dominance, Los Angeles converted the young fireballer to relief in time for his big-league debut. The stuff was there when he stepped on the hallowed Chavez hump, but playoff-caliber command of it didn't materialize as hoped, and October will have to call again another day. Fortunately, Buehler figures to have his opportunities. His top-of-the-scale gas and hard curve anchor a potentially front-end arsenal, and he'll position well to build an innings bump in his second full season removed from the knife.
2017 One can only imagine that Walker Buehler's arduous return from Tommy John surgery was made worse by persistent refrains of "Buehler...Buehler..." The 2015 first-round pick finally answered the call, returning to the mound this summer and throwing five healthy innings.
2016 The Dodgers popped Vanderbilt product Walker Buehler 24th overall in the 2015 draft only to learn the right-hander would need Tommy John surgery immediately thereafter. Buehler should get between 365 and 547 Days Off.

2019-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)I LOVE Ronald Acuna, Jr. Do I trade him for Walker Buehler, Gerrit Cole, Javy Baez, and this other team's 1st round pick (would be 2nd overall currently). I'm currently in 1st, its a keep 12 forever league. I think I can win without this deal but doing it would all but wrap it up for me. Pull the trigger and give up my beloved?
(This guy from Over Here)
He's such a fun guy to own but this is a massive haul even without the consideration of it pushing you over the edge in the league. You're getting two aces, another mesmerizing player in Baez, AND a great pick. This is too much value to turn down, even for someone like Acuna. (Darius Austin)
2019-05-06 23:45:00 (link to chat)Michael Grove or Josiah Gray? Who is a better long term SP prospect for the Dodgers?
(Freida from Paris)
Walker Buehler doin' *work* tonight, btw. Let's keep it blue for the west coast. I can't speak to Gray yet, though we should have eyes on him in Great Lakes shortly. Grove I wrote up here: https://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/article/48702/notes-from-the-field-april-23rd-2019/

I didn't love the delivery, but it was like his third game back from a long TJ recovery, so realistically it's going to be a bit before we learn much substantively about him. Showed a quality deuce and okay velo in context, so it's a start! (Wilson Karaman)
2019-05-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)I have a need for pitching and too many bench hitters who shouldn't be on the bench....ie Amed Rosario. I want to trade Ohtani for SP help. Can you please offer 5 targets? David Price? And who?
(Vic from Baltimore)
You'll need to add another piece, but Gerrit Cole should be a target. Walker Buehler. I'd be inquiring on Zack Wheeler and Eduardo Rodriguez. I'm also buying Frankie Montas's early-season breakout. (J.P. Breen)
2019-05-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any reason to panic about Walker Buehler? Velocity and FIP suggest he's ok, but not getting Ks at his usual clip.
(jeremydneezy from Brooklyn)
I've watched a few of his starts and he just hasn't been as sharp. I'm not worried about him though, he's the type of guy who should be able to iron out whatever isn't working. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-02-06 21:00:00 (link to chat)I am rebuilding in a dynasty league and the core of my team is made up of Trea Turner, Kyle Schwarber, Bichette, Adell, Huira, Luzardo, Walker Buehler, Flaherty and Jameson Tallion. Some prospects that I have that are further away are Kelenic, Swaggerty, Hoerner, Oneill Cruz, Bryse Wilson, Eric Pardinho, Graterol, and Corbin Martin. From a roster construction stand point, would you trade Keston Huira for Forrest Whitley because I seem to have more hitting depth and Whitley has a shot to be an ace or would you keep Huira because pitchers are hurt so often and hitters tend to last a decade? Muchas Gracias. I will save you some rings.
(Sonic Not the Hedgehog from Eating Rings Somewhere)
I would not make that trade. If you're rebuilding, there's no reason to push in for pitchers until you're ready to turn the corner. -BS (Dynasty 101 Chat w/ Ben Carsley and Bret Sayre)
2019-02-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Trade Suarez, Blackmon, and Albies and get Walker Buehler and W.Marifield? I also get a #3 pick this year. a 3 and 5 next year. this is a 12 team H2H keeper league. We keep 10 players. Current Roster - abreau, moncada, torres, Albies, Suarez, Blacknon, Hicks, Mazara, Snell, Severino. If i make this trade, who is my best 10th keeper? Treinen, Bader, Sano, or Tanaka? thanks!
(Juan from Illinois)
I'd hold unless the pitching FA pool is really thin. It's probably Bader. (Mike Gianella)
2019-02-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Is Walker Buehler the ace of the Dodgers at this point?
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
It's still Kershaw but it really is close, and it wouldn't surprise if Buehler takes that "role" this year. (Mike Gianella)
2018-11-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will we see Dustin May in LA in 2019? Do you think he still has the potential to be a #2 or #3?
(Vandall from South Bend)
This seems an appropriate time to remind everyone reading this that I write about current baseball, baseball analytics, baseball history, and baseball economics. I know next to nothing about prospects and fantasy. Not that I don't care, but there are others here who are far, far better than I. So you should post questions like this to them! Wilson Karaman is chatting tomorrow; he knows fantasy and prospects. Jeffrey Paternostro is our lead prospect writer; he'll be chatting Friday. Bryan Grosnick and Jarrett Seidler next week. Mike Gianella and Kevin Carter the week after. All far better people to ask fantasy and prospects questions! As for Dustin May, I see he just turned 21 and has pitched a grand total of 34 1/3 innings above A-level. Again, I'll defer to the smart kids, but I don't see the Dodgers rushing him. (And yes, I know, Walker Buehler, but was older and rocketed his way up through the minors before arriving at Chavez Ravine.) But seriously, I'm a moron. Ask Wilson or Jeffrey tomorrow or Friday! (Rob Mains)
2018-04-13 12:00:00 (link to chat)How will the Dodgers ultimately deploy Walker Buehler this year? Bullpen, or will he get some MLB starts?
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
How's the bat? That seems to be the biggest issue right now. I think it will likely come down to need, but the Dodgers do like to churn starters, so I wouldn't be shocked if they use him in that role at some point this Summer. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2018-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you think has the better career: Walker Buehler or Jesus Luzardo?
(The Lizard King from Ferris' sisters room)
Gimme Buehler. (Mark Barry)
2018-02-13 20:00:00 (link to chat)Will Walker Buehler ever have the durability to be a starter? Seems like a long shot to me.
(Mr. Fister from Arlington)
I see him as a James Paxton type. 150 innings? Maybe. 200? Nah, but then that's true for nearly everyone. (Mike Gianella)
2018-01-23 23:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Walker Buehler is destined for a bullpen role or can he stick as a starter?
(Bryzzo from Illinois)
Destined? No. He's stronger than his frame suggests he is, but it's not a body that carries on unsolicited about durability. The arsenal's plenty for startin', so they might as well keep him in the role.

The original of this cut by Ike Turner is great, but this sequel's better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVtIpJtTE2I (Wilson Karaman)
2017-11-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Walker Buehler remains a starting pitcher? And has anyone on the BP team seen Kevin Maitan to offer impressions from his 2017?
(Floyd from CA)
I think he is more likely to remain a starter than a reliever, but it's far from a lock. We'll have more info this time next year when he is another year removed from TJ. John saw Maitan a fair bit in Danville and has some concerns about the body and the bat, which he gets into in more detail on the Braves list. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-10-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)It's so hot. Prospects, what can you tell us about Alex Verdugo and Walker Buehler?
(Cole Whittier from Pasadena, CA)
They're both top 25 global type guys, and they're both very close to ready. Verdugo could be a tremendous defender who also hits for average, Buehler has some of the best stuff of anyone around but significant health/durability questions. I'd expect both to be in the mix for full-time gigs by next summer. -- Jarrett (World Series Chat)
2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on if (or to what extent) Walker Buehler can help the Dodgers bullpen?
(Seth from LA)
He got plenty of practice earlier in the season airing it out for short bursts, and the raw stuff is absurd. He can help any bullpen.

2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Was it hard to rank Buehler when the Dodgers aren't letting him go more than 75 pitches in a start? I'd think it'd present challenges when a 22 year old prospect is being handled that carefully.
(Charlie from LA)
Jarrett talks about this in his supplemental piece today, but this isn't just a Walker Buehler problem, all these guys get handled pretty carefully now. Other than Mike Soroka apparently. It makes things trickier for sure. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)Is Walker Buehler a future #2 type?
(Chris from Texas)
Yes, although he could settle in as a mid-tier guy as well. (Mike Gianella)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)What's the expectation for Walker Buehler now after all these reports about his velo? Will he have the helium to rise into the top 20 prospects by season's end?
(grimoren189 from Houston)
I think that's aggressive because there's still a lot we don't know and velocity does not a top prospect make. Buehler is on the shorter side for a starter and there are questions about how much he holds up in games and over the course of a season, so we'll need to see him maintain that velocity (or close enough) over the course of the season, and as he goes deeper into games. I think he gets a big dose of helium but not top 20. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-04-05 23:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty rebuild (25 man x 20 team) where prospects must be carried on roster. Which of the following acquired assets have highest upside/best chance to be "pillars" for the next championship?? ' Bats: Gallo, Josh Bell, Vlad Jr., Nick Williams, Brad Zimmer, Willy Adames, Mateo, Robles, Ames Rosario, Corey Ray Arms: Bundy, Reyes (post injury), Matt Manning, Sandy Alcantara, Walker Buehler
(Loria's Cousin Fazzie from Milwaukee,, Wi)
In terms of cornerstone ceiling, I'd put Gallo, Vlad Jr., Robles, and Reyes in that category of guys I could see topping out as top-50 players. Maybe Ray too? There's varying degrees of risk baked in there - for instance, Gallo's more likely Russell Branyan than he is Babe Ruth. Vlad Jr.'s like 11 and carries the associated developmental risk, etc. It's a solid collection of talent for a rebuild with a window 3-4 years out. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-03-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some lower end top 100 prospects that could really shoot towards the top of the 2018 top 100?
(Cubs Fan 69 from Illinois)
Kevin Maitan feels like an obvious answer. I could see Walker Buehler, Jahmai Jones, and Delvin Perez making some big leaps as well. (Mark Barry)
2017-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you been aware of any new changes in minor leaguers (velocity, batting stances, anything) this spring training that has you interested about how they perform this season? I know Mitch White and Walker Buehler were pumping serious gas the other day. Something in that vein.
(Eddy from NY)
These stories pop up every Spring, because there isn't much to write about. I'd pay closer attention to Buehler and White, especially Buehler since this is a continuation of how he looked late last season. But some guys also just get hot early and can air it out in two-inning stints. Jarrett does have a piece in the works on this topic though (Spring prospect helium generally) (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, I could use some help on deep dynasty assets for a prospect draft. 20 team dynasty league, 150+ prospects owned. I have two upcoming picks and I've put together a list of 10 guys that I'm having a terrible time differentiating. My list is: Jake Bauers, Jahmai Jones, Lucas Erceg, Christin Stewart, Taylor Trammell, Alec Hansen, Walker Buehler, Sixto Sanchez, Justin Dunn, Sandy Alcantara I was thinking about one hitter and one pitcher but really I just want the two best values from that list. How would you rank the top 3-5 in case a few get taken between my picks? Obviously some of them are closer to the majors and some are much farther away which is why I'm struggling. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
(treynay3 from Grand Rapids)
I'd go Jones, Alcantara, Erceg, Dunn. (Bret Sayre)
